Is it a must for businesses to keep growing? Is it peculiar if someone doesn’t want to grow her business?
Well in today’s episode, I speak to a guest who is at a crossroads of her business because she asked herself, “Do we want to keep growing and growing? Is it an inevitable path for all businesses?” What if she doesn’t want to do that and just wants to maintain what she’s doing now?
Deepa is the founder & Innovation Director for J Gordhan & Co Ltd. in Hong Kong. She manages a business that brings fun into every child and adult’s life through her arts, craft and hobby products.
They design, manufacture and deliver products to their customers who are retailers around the world “whether it's a painting, stitching or anything hobby-related.” They supply everything from stickers to paper plates, Christmas decorations to crayons, paints and more.
Since she enjoyed marketing, her father encouraged her to start her first business, marketing a product that was seen as waste from paper mills! It is no surprise then that she is inspired by her father.
In the process, she grew her one product to 2,000 SKUs while learning about the manufacturing of products including safety compliance and quality testing in China. Later, she relocated to Hong Kong.
